Watch: Double bad luck for motorcyclist

It’s bad enough crashing into a car, but this Indian motorcyclist gets a double dose of bad luck when the post he runs into collapses on top of him.

The security camera footage shows the driver of the white car pausing at an intersection, then starting to turn left, right into the path of the rider.

It’s bad luck for the rider who then slides into a light pole.

He gets up and seems ok but bad luck strikes a second time when the light pole falls on his head.

Thankfully he is reported to be ok since the pole struck his helmet.

Helmets are mandatory in India, but many don’t bother and turban-wearing Sikhs are exempt.

In fact, the fatality figures for Indian riders not wearing are quite shocking with at least 98 helmet-less riders dying daily in 2017.
